CHRISTMAS CONFERENCE Dec 15, 2010
What a great Christmas Conference we had. Lots of fun, lots of laughs, lots of talents, lots of music, lots of visiting, lots of eating, and lots of Christmas Spirit.
We met at the Centreville Stake Center at 9:00 a.m. The missionaries were given an hour to just arrive and visit (because they really like to visit with each other). We started the festivities at 10:00. We had a prayer and then the fun began. We started with a wonderful talent show by our missionaries. The program included;

Elder Marriott then gave a beautiful Christmas message. It was so nice of him to come and take time from his schedule to address our mission. He is an inspiring man. He is the area authority over our mission.
